This programme is currently only open to students joining us with funding from partner universities (more info on this FAQ).

Our programme in Spain mainly takes place in Andalusia in southern Spain. This area is rich in history and culture, with particular influence from Arab and Jewish cultures. There are remarkable examples of Arabic and Jewish architecture and religious sites, alongside delicious tapas in Granada, Cordoba and Seville, and other cities and towns in Andalusia. You will visit Granada at the end of your camps to learn more about the history.
The summer camp takes place in a small village surrounded by olive trees, where you will teach Spanish adult teachers who want to improve their fluency in English. This will give you experience in teaching adults, and an opportunity to chat and make friends with your students through fun activities.
This is a great opportunity to explore Spain’s history and culture, and interrail beyond Andalucia after the camp. We offer support and advice from a team that includes both experienced travellers and qualified teachers, on top of the support that is offered by the camp you are on.
We want to make teaching and travel more accessible, so we arrange funding for all our programmes. Our month-long programme in Spain is only available to students with funding from partner universities. However, our programme with two weeks in Germany and two weeks in Spain is only open to people on our TESOL Primer and TESOL Direct Access pathways.
